SLCC athletic director Norma Carr to retire
First Published Mar 05 2014 01:41 pm • Last Updated Mar 05 2014 09:31 pm

Norma Carr, who has been Salt Lake Community College’s athletic director for the last 25 years, announced that she will be retiring at the end of July.

"My time here at Salt Lake Community College has been unbelievable," Carr said. "Over these many years I’ve had so many wonderful memories. This was a difficult decision to make, and because of the lifelong relationships and friendships I’ve made, it’s very hard for me to leave."

When Carr took over at SLCC, the athletic department was a struggling two-sport program (men’s and women’s basketball). Under Carr’s guidance, SLCC is now a flourishing five-sport program that has won numerous Scenic West Athletic Conference and Region 18 championships, including the 2009 NJCAA National Championship in men’s basketball.

Prior to coming to SLCC, Carr spent 14 seasons as the University of Utah’s head softball coach, four years on the Utes’ volleyball coaching staff and one year as an assistant on the U. women’s basketball staff.

"Norma Carr has led SLCC’s Athletic Department with passion, relentless energy and the perfect competitive spirit," said SLCC Interim President Deneece Huftalin. "While she has consistently led us to regional and national wins, she has done it always with a student-centered focus. Our athletes at SLCC are academically and athletically strong largely due to the values and leadership that Norma has demonstrated. I am happy for her personally but will definitely feel her absence! She’s a remarkable woman, leader and friend."
